Ex-Ghana shot-stopper Fatau Dauda has revealed how his proposed move to Asante Kotoko failed to materialise.
Dauda, 36, was strongly linked with a move to the Kumasi-based Porcupine Warriors during the minor window in January.
But, the deal fell through at the last hour.
The 2014 FIFA World Cup Ghana goalkeeper has given details about why the move failed.
“Of I’m an experienced goalkeeper and my presence could’ve done a lot for the team even in terms of serving as a motivation for some of the players. But, I think there was some displeasure from certain quarters of the supporters of the club. If you look at how important club fans are, you can’t underrate that,” he said on Angel TV.
“So it ended up that we had to shelve the plans in order not to spark any unrest within the supporters,” he added.
Dauda last featured for Legon Cities in the Ghana Premier League. The 1.8m tall Obuasi-born gloveman has had spells with Orlando Pirates, Chippa United, AshantiGold, and Enyimba FC of Nigeria.
